at an age when the obama derangement syndrome runs washington. >> and the age when public opinion doesn't matter. i dispute the idea that momentum is gone. you see a poll every once in a while that indicates that in general terms. but if you look at the specific measures, do you support background checks, do you support ban on assault weapons. do you support ban on extended magazines? these things all win majorities. background checks wins, the last i checked the majority is around 90% and it hasn't dropped. >> the senators who are seen as the most obstructionist on this issue, even in their states, arkansas, 84% support background checks. louisiana, 85%, where mary landrieu is being chicken on the issue. montana, 79%. >> i have to read, this is one of my favorite columns, the economist wrote about america's gun divide, they wrote the truth is that gun control is going nowhere. one reason is that the millions of americans in favor of gun control do not live in the right places. support for gun control is geographically and racially concentrated in ways that sap the momentum of political

'm very hopeful that we can get this passed. >> dana milbank writes in "the washington post". obama on guns too little too late. on almost every topic from budget negotiations to national security, washington seems only to act these days in response to crisis if it acts at all. obama errored in trying to use newtown to build support for his positions on taxes and energy and immigration and he compounded the error by sending j joe biden to conduct a study. once the president took his foot off the accelerator no other action not even michael bloomberg's ad campaign to maintain the momentum. mark kelly has been, obviously, outspoken advocate on gun control legislation and he has been going around and buying guns and showing how long it takes to fill out a background check. i think it was like five minutes and 36 seconds, just if you care. if you can wait five minutes and 36 seconds for your gun. >> so i'm hearing behind the scenes there is still a deal that is being worked on universal background checks but yesterday it sound like it might be dead. >> they are still trying to figure ou

"the new york times" said she will speak april 24th before the national multihousing council in dallas. no word on how much she will receive but it is expected to be in the six figures. she is on her memoir for her time. when you lost the thing you can't believe you lost. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little trouble a long way from home... as an american express cardmemb

roosevelt to modern era lead rs like reagan, bush and obama are criticized heavily for helping direct the country's economy. looking at washington today, stockton sees a rogue central bank. too much wall street influence. and two political parties at a standstill. all this he arguing is leading to an even bigger fiscal crisis. we're dpoing to forget about the armageddon. this show is about the next couple weeks and months. i'm not thinking a million years from now but i got to ask you about this. first of all, i think this whole fiscal cliff, this whole thing between the two parties is hopeless. why would a republican member of congress, why would they want to raise taxes so they get the joy of screwing people on medicare? that's -- why should a democrat screw the people who depend on him who are living on medicare and social security to get the rich to pay more taxes? neither one of these things seem to work for me politically. why is the president pushing it? >> well, i don't know. it's not going to happen. it's a problem of our divided government. >> would you vote for either one o

wrote a column in yesterday's "washington post" that said, quote, obama made an impassioned bid to revive prospects for gun control legislation but it's difficult to escape the conclusion that his efforts come too late, end quote. do you think then that there was ever a time line that was out there that he is not making or meeting at the moment? >> well, i'd love to be wrong but this is certainly the sentiment in town right now suggests nothing substantial is really going to occur in terms of background checks. it will be some watered down version of that if anything gets through at all. an argument could be made maybe this was inevitable and it wasn't going to work regardless, but it seemed that there was a window of opportunity right after the newtown massacre when the nra was back on its heels and the public opinion was really focused and it seemed that if things were brought to the congress right away then instead of studying it and allowing people to go home for the holidays, it's possible we would be in a better place than we are now. >> what's your thought about the time

check and yet people in washington are working hard to kill this every single day. it just doesn't make sense. and that's why, you know, the way barack obama won two elections was person to person talking about the issues and he won elections that people say he couldn't win and that's exactly the kind of commitment and the kind of organizing we have to do around these legislative issues. they are going to spend all of the money in the world and we're going to encounter it with fax and people and i like our chances. >> well, i think you laid out a real strategy and it's interesting when you were talking about he won elections people didn't think he could win, i was looking at a quote from you where you talked about doing health care five different times during the health care we went in and told the president it was dead and five different times he put it together and passed a bill that has made millions of americans live better and that's why he's the leader who i believe in. and i think that's an interesting statement, jim. it gives a lot of hope on the policies we're dealing with now

president obama launched a plan for job creation. business start up apps was fast tracked but now there are concerns that it blazed through washington nobody noticed any flaws. brenda buttner, anchor of "bulls and bears", so were there flaws? >> yes. there were flaws. it went really fast and nobody has any measure, did it create jobs? they just love the name. was a great thing. first thing, it allows hedge funds basically to market email and internet, facebook to more unsophisticated investors. they haven't been able to do that up to this point. it has a thing called crowd funding which mean that people could be the target of bogus internet scams or frauds. they think as small investors buy a part of company. there is some fear that is also a problem. it also temporarily allows some smaller firms to skirt accounting or disclosure rules when they are going public. the idea is let these small companies go public and they will create jobs, but there is no empirical evidence that happens just because something goes public. >> gregg: did anything good happen out of it? >> well, it show
